Quiet. Calm. Gratitude. Happiness. Wellbeing.

These are the states of being we all aspire to. Yet the realities of everyday living, the stresses we all continually contend with can put these qualities just beyond our grasp. So what can we do? We can train our brains to more naturally come to these states through the practice of mindfulness.

  • Learn specific strategies and practices that promote well-being for yourself and those who count on you
  • Learn what mindfulness is (and is not)
  • Explore a multitude of ways to bring mindfulness into your daily life, including during work meetings and routine activities like eating, walking, and being in nature.

No prior experience is necessary. Please come dressed in comfortable clothes.

Volunteers: Be the support to help a rider go from “I Can’t” to “I Can”! We need YOU to believe in them along the way. YOU will be ’spotting’ riders as the roller equipment is gradually taken away. Choose one or more sessions to help with, Monday-Friday. Individuals & Groups welcome!
